Let's get in the holiday spirit and surprise Nurse Ann with a whole bunch of shorts! She still needs extra shorts, particularly drawstring. 
Congratulations to our new PTO board members: 

Kristin Klecka (Secretary)
Christy Guemple (VP of Community Outreach)

Madison Beedy (VP of School Programs)

If you are thinking that you might like to join the PTO board or chair a committee next year, be sure to come to the January 14th PTO meeting.
The fundraiser runs all day long at the CPK at Desert Ridge. Grab a bite to eat with your family or friends, and a portion of your meal goes back to the school. Don't forget to say you're from Grayhawk! (P.S. Take out counts, too!)
This Friday is Pajama Day at Grayhawk!!!! Wear your favorite PJs to kick off our winter break. This Spirit Day is sponsored by Grayhawk Student Council. (Remember, no slippers.)
Library renovations continue! There will be a big transformation over winter break. If you want to spend more time in the cool new library, think about becoming a Library Helper.

You can choose to volunteer during your student's library time (this is a great opportunity to interact with students and teachers). While the class is in the library, you would help students find appropriate books. The rest of the time, you would help shelve books and tidy up the bookshelves. (Volunteers usually come in on a weekly/biweekly basis.) 

Be sure to register for the PVSchools Community 5K Fun Run/Walk. The event is Saturday, February 9, at Horizon High School, but you must sign up by January 13. Invite your friends to join you, too!  
Let’s get a great Grayhawk Team together this year. This is for kids and adults!
As you are thinking about year-end donations, don't forget about the Arizona tax credit to public schools. You can donate to Grayhawk Elementary School and (in most cases) take a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your state taxes for 2018. Get more details and donate HERE
If you forgot to send in your Gifts-4-Kids present, be sure to send it in tomorrow! 
Do you have a sunny personality and want to work just during school hours? Think about applying to work at Grayhawk! The school is looking for a campus assistant (Ms. Yvette's position). You can ask the front office for details, and check out the job posting HERE (keyword "Grayhawk").

This is a unique opportunity to work where your student already comes each day!

Winter break kicks off at 3:15 this Friday! We will be back at school on Monday, January 7. Enjoy your break!
